    Probably solid black but some white streaking on the feathers may bleed through. Wouldn't be the most dazzling.

    awesome.... thanks...
    I went for blues and they had listed that they had black and whites....I thought they had... blacks and some whites.... turned out to be some awesome looking from what I can tell silver laced girls.... lovely little round butts!
    I am in love! I kinda kick myself... i should have asked if he would sell the silver laced roo! But he wasnt as stocky as I like... I have a flashy little black roo that I love to cross them too.... the guy had a ton of started silver laced chicks ($3 each!)... I got 3 chicks that look like pullets and am hoping here in about two weeks he will have more left....

    I got two silver laced a blue and a red.... his blues tails were pointier than I was looking for... not the little round poofs. HOpefully I will get some pretty little babies!

    I luv luv luv her....
    He pulled her out of the nest box and I almost hyperventilated....
    I never dreamed I would find a nice silver laced cochin here in west texas... not for the $10 I spent for each one...
    Im still dizzy from the excitement...
    Hoping my 3 babies are as pretty... I tried to pick the babies with the roundest bodies and tail poofs....
